AWISLguy (1337) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a dark black with a tan head leaving a lot of spotty lacing. Aroma has black patent malts, citrus, caramel and pine. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, bitter citrus, fruity hops and molasses. Medium bodied. Somewhat syrupy but dry-ish in the finish. Finishes terrifically bittersweet - good blend of both the citrusy bitterness and the sweet molasses. A nice one!
